The Big Bash League season 2021–22, often known as BBL 11, will be the eleventh edition of the league. The Big Bash League is an Australian white-collar franchise Twenty20 cricket competition created by Cricket Australia in 2011. For sponsorship purposes, it is also recognized as the KFC Big Bash League, and it is also abbreviated as Big Bash or BBL. Since its inception, the tournament has been sponsored by KFC, a fast-food chicken restaurant. Because the Big Bash League includes overseas players, it makes the sport more exciting and enjoyable.
The Big Bash League 2021-22 season will begin on December 5, with 61 total matches to be played over the course of one and a half months. The playoffs comprise five matches: an Eliminator, a Qualifier, a Knock-Out, a Challenger, and a Final. Unlike last year's version, which used a limited number of locations owing to Covid-19 limitations, this year's matches will have a normal home and away schedule.
There is a total number of 8 teams that will participate in the BBL 2021-22 season. The defending champions are the Sydney Sixers. Six of the eight clubs have won the championship at least once. Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers are two of the most successful teams, having won the tournament three times. All the BBL matches will be hosted by Australia. The competition will be held at fourteen different locations, including the return of Geelong and Coffs Harbour.
Cricket Australia revealed the tournament's complete schedule on July 14, 2021. Channel Seven will broadcast 45 of the 61 games, including all of the finals, while Fox Cricket and Kayo Sports will air all of the games.
